3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a medium, firm head. Grainy-pale-malty aroma with some honey sweetness. Pale, sweetish malt with herby hops and honey hints in the flavor. Fruitiness comes up with yeast. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated but smooth palate. A quite balanced blonde on the sweeter, fruitiier side. Not far from tripel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale light amber with a cream head which isn’t sticking around long.
Aroma of malts, some citrus fruits, and some caramel. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, yeast and only a slight fruitiness, which is rather unexpected given the fruity smell. Dry finish. Rather thin but altogether not an unpleasant beer at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Deep orange pour, huge very solid off-white head. Aroma of some floral hops, spicy malts and slight sugar. Flavor is mostly bitter and spicy, with nice hops and quite a solid malt base. Missing some unique character, but a very decent brew. A tiny hint of metal in the finish but that does not spoil anything.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Stubby bottle, 330 ml. Poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 7%
Clear body, deep orange golden in colour. Tall off-white head, thick with very good retention.Medium lacing left behind.
Weirdly nice aroma, fruity, some bananas but processed-like an not the actual fruit, sugar, some dough. Now that I am thinking about it the smell I was looking for is banana bread but a quite sweet one.
Taste is also fruity but more complex, again banana bread, along with peaches, hops, sugar, light yeast, light wine notes, with a mild but satisfying bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium thin body, carbonatiion is a bit high but still on good levels.
Overall very surprised by tis one, it was dirt cheap and sitting on the shelf along other more mediocre beers so I was expecting yet one of the sae but it really surpassed my expectations.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hobby brew commercialized through ’Proef’, the creator from Evergem near Ghent now has his own beer company, but no commercial brewery (yet). Medium stable, off-white head, peach blonde colour with orange hue, misty. Aroma of orange, ripe pear, coriander, some grassy and herbal hoppiness. Fruity taste with spicy notes, bit yeasty, caramel maltiness, herbal hoppy finish. Well-balanced and correct but not much of a personality among its peers.
